TORONTO, April 12, 2013… Trevor James & The Perfect Gentlemen and Geneva hosted by RaSoul perform at Paintbox Catering & Bistro Inc., Toronto’s hottest new live entertainment venue. Continuing their SEASON OF ENTERTAINMENT, Sponsored by The Daniels Corporation, performances will be showcased on Thursday, April 18/13 @ 8pm.
A three piece ensemble, Trevor James & The Perfect Gentlemen are known for their rootsy and sometimes rocky folk tunes; melody and lyric being their ultimate focus. Whether it’s the inviting, honest nature of the songs, the irresistible melodies or the unique vocal styling of Trevor James himself – the sound of Trevor James and his backing band The Perfect Gentlemen is addictive. The band is currently working on their first full length album for Blacktop Records.
The music of Toronto soulstress Geneva, formerly geneva.b, is a channeling of R ‘n’ B, hip hop, and jazz tunes. Her songs present a classic aesthetic with futuristic flavour. With throwback-inspired mixtape LoveSick under her belt, Geneva is currently preparing to release the next single off her forthcoming EP, as well as a single with South African Ancestral Soul producer Boddhi Satva through his label Offering Recordings. Whether sentient, sexy or introspective, Geneva will stir your emotions and draw you into her surreal, dreamy world.
Coming out for the Indie Series provides the perfect opportunity to also sample Paintbox’s delicious menu. The Toronto Star in a recent review lauded Paintbox Bistro not just for the creativity and technical proficiency of its food (and the good value it offers), but also for its social mission: the Bistro is “helping to revitalize Regent Park, one scrumptious roasted heirloom carrot at a time” by hiring marginalized individuals and training them in the finer points of operating a restaurant.

Paintbox is a rapidly growing corporation, offering and social enterprise located in the heart of Regent Park – a place where Regent Park meets the broader Toronto community. Its cuisine is a playful celebration of local abundance, full of inspiration from the community – a balance of complete culinary technique and whimsy, featuring strong, earthy flavours and naturalistic presentation. Paintbox Bistro and its Catering division prides itself in being innovative, offering a level of food and service that is unfamiliar to Toronto, and truly thinking outside of the box! Paintbox doesn’t aspire to be “trendy”; but a high volume restaurant that produces beautiful dishes while maintaining a strong social mandate. Tucked into the corner of the Daniels Spectrum – the new cultural hub in Regent Park – Paintbox Bistro offers a fun and welcoming environment to dine and dish with friends, or relax with cocktails and live entertainment.
Paintbox is a social enterprise, providing employment, training, and career development to residents of Regent Park and other close-by marginalized communities. Almost all of the charming staff are from the neighbourhood or other close by marginalized communities and have been offered the opportunity to study at George Brown College, one of North America’s top 10 culinary schools, in the Chefs program.
Paintbox is a true expression of what is going on in Regent Park – offering compassion and empowerment to those within the community who have become isolated. A restaurant that strives to sustain a community’s hopes.
